Some randomness for you that, hopefully, will constitute an entire post. Bullet points! Hooray!
- The crazy-assed two day conference I helped plan went off smashingly well, if I do say so. I feel like an event is a success if the only negative comments people can come up with are things that cannot be helped (ie weather) and no one loses an eye. I aim high, clearly. Anyway, it was gratifying to see the fruits of my labor come to life and DUDE I TOTALLY MET A NOBEL PRIZE WINNER AND HE ASKED MY OPINION ABOUT STUFF. Also, nice that none of my stress dreams came true: people showed up, there was enough food and I never misplaced my shoes. Who dreams about misplacing her shoes during a work event? I do, apparently.
- I am feeling the need for a change-up in the hair department. After a whopping four months of sorta-longish-at-least-for-me hair I am thinking about cutting it. Nothing crazy, but I keep seeing all these pictures of curly haired women with adorable shorter styles and I look at my scrappy ponytail and think, “Meh, surely I can do better than this” and am tempted to chop it. Also, I am missing the red and think it may be time to say buh-bye to the auburnish-brown hybrid that doesn’t really do much for me. Joan Holloway is a big inspiration. Any thoughts or advice here is welcome. Because I know you care.
- Forever 21 just opened in Chico and I am excessively excited about that. Nevermind that I am a good 10 years beyond the intended demographic.
- Last night we were talking about getting called for jury duty and I talked about Liz Lemon’s method for getting out of it. Watch this if performing your civic duty doesn’t appeal. Safe for work, but you may accidentally snort coffee out of your nose. Not that I’ve ever done that.
